We sat outside, by the beach, which was quite nice, but a reservation was needed.
Food was good. We had a Greek salad and bifteki to start and ordered pasticcio as a main dish to share. We got our starters and, as always, time passed and we started eating the delicious things in front of us, until we were basically full... and still the pasticcio was nowhere to be seen. Turned out the waiter did not put the order in, which was not so bad as we eventually did get the pasticcio (very good) and desert was on the house for our trouble.
Overall, a good experience and we will be back.

Fresh food, good taste, nice view. We can recommend. The service is good and the atmosphere is also good. We tried the mousaka, souvlaki, shrimps, Freek salad and pasta carbonara. All very good

Excellent view, very friendly good service.
The food was good. Greek with a twist...some dishes not quite what you would expect.
Have been there more than 4 times in the past 2 years.
Open for lunch and dinner. I love the way the place is decorated and there is seating by the beach as well as indoors.
The place is good for families because it has enough space and also for couples or groups of friends cause of the space, you can choose to set so e place where you can be comfortable.
I recommend it as one of the good places in Gialova to try out when you are there.

Elia restaurant was a wonderful surprise the first time we went a few years ago. Have been back every year - more than once! The couple running the restaurant are client friendly, efficient and excellent at what they do. The food is very tasty and unlike anywhere else in the larger area. Greek food but in a new light. My husbands favourite is the Yoghurtloukebab I love the mushroom penne, the grilled mushrooms and either of the green salads, with manouri cheese or the grilled mastelo - cheese from the island of Chios. Prices slightly more expensive than a regular taverna but well worth the difference, and still very reasonable. Great value for money. Does get crowded in the busier summer period so best to book if going with a large party in August. A must if in the area.
